Are there command line options in the new UWP app (using a richedit class) similar to those for the Notepad of Windows 10 and previous? e.g.

/A open file as ansi
/W open file as unicode
/P print filename
/PT print filename to designated printer

    Have you tried them in Windows 11? May 9, 2022 at 7:44
  • No, Windows 11 isn't installed yet. May 9, 2022 at 8:55
  • Try installing Windows 11 and then ask. I am on Windows 11 here and notepad command lines are reasonably the same as prior versions.

  • You have lodged a comment in the Moderator's forum that "Command lines don't work for some" . I have given you a complete answer and Notepad Command lines work in Windows 11. To troubleshoot issues beyond that, you need to be working in Windows 11.

  • @John- Not command lines, rather the question has bruised the sensitivities of our frequent readers. Turns out Notepad command lines have touched some nerves it seems. May 9, 2022 at 14:34

There is a limited set of Notepad commands (not a common use of Notepad).

NotePad commands

Recognized Answer

There is but a limited set of command line options:

/A open file as ansi /W open file as unicode /P print filename /PT print filename to designated printer There is no switch to disable file menu functionality

I have tested /A /W and /P on my Windows 11 Pro machine, and they all work. I did not want to try /PT print filename to designated printer

So to your question: Windows 11 Notepad: Command Line Options?

Same in Windows 11 as in Prior Operating systems. No apparent change.

To troubleshoot USER issues, you will need to be using Windows 11 yourself.
